The Guns of Easter

The Guns Of Easter
The guns of Easter is written by Gerard Whelan.
It is a story based on the 1916 rising. It is about a family living in a small house and not that much money. The main characters in this amazing book are a mother, a father,
Sarah, Josie,Jimmy, uncle Mick and auntie Ella. Jimmy’s father goes to fight in the war because he had no other choice. The family doesn’t have any money so it is the right thing to do. I think this book is very interesting and it helps you witness what life was like back then. Jimmy and his family suffer some hard times,they don’t have couches,televisions and lots more.
I think that this book is really good and I would definitely recommend reading it.
